    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    It's possible that she could be having something like that, but it seems more likely that it would be medication side effects. Has she started or stopped any medications, or made any dietary changes recently? Have her ask her neurologist about these new symptoms.

    How frequently does she get the shots? They should last around a year. What type of headache is it, a migraine or tension/neck-related? What other meds is she taking? Look them up and check for side effects.
